Jubilee celebrations in AMS (corrected v.)

Jubilees of 65, 60 and 50 years of missionary commitment in the province of AMS


On Saturday, May 18, the jubilee celebration of the Sherbrooke House took place.

There were five of them: two of them with 65 years of oath: Pierre Aucoin and Victor Grégoire. Fernand Chicoine and Jean-Marie Tardif celebrated their sixtieth and Pierre Benson, 50 years of commitment. What struck me during the presentation of each of them was the great diversity of their commitments to the mission in Africa and for Africa. That’s impressive.

It was a beautiful day of thanksgiving, which brought together several confreres, relatives and friends. Once again, on behalf of the mafr.net website, my congratulations and thanks to all the Fathers and Sisters of the Society of Missionaries of Africa for their contributions to the emancipation of Africa in this year of the 150th anniversary of their foundation.
